That's understandable and no problem - there's various possibilities
And I appreciate an opportunity to give you more info about pet store packaged bird seed.
Most importantly, a psittacine, like your bird (most hook bills or parrots) do not eat the outside of the seed. That's why you'll see bowls of seed that look untouched, but when you move it you discover it's just a bowl of broken seed pods - the inside is eaten.
When a company claims to 'fortify' their seeds, what they do is spray a vitamin coating on the seeds. This doesn't do much, if any good, when left behind in the bowl right?
As for the iodine, this also plays on old (decades old) fear of problems that were seen in birds. These days in most developed countries there is iodine supplied in regular tap water. It's also in a great deal of other foods, which makes feeding your companion a varied diet very important.
So much information is flooding the net these days about what to feed a companion bird, whether a budgie/parakeet, cockatiel or marvelous macaw, it’s sometimes difficult to wade through the junk science, old wives tales, well meaning owner advice or just plain dangerous suggestions.
The vitamins from pet stores can sometimes cause more problems than they solve. I really wish they weren’t allowed to sell them (or the supposed antibiotics or sprays or mite protectors).
It’s generally recommended that most of today’s companion birds have a predominantly pelleted diet. Pellets have been continually updated since being introduced to the market years ago and today’s formulas are better than ever.
Supplementing this diet with fresh foods every day is ideal and many owners find they can re-introduce seeds - in limited amounts (perhaps once or twice a week) without the bird refusing the pellets overall.
Whole grains, dark leafy vegetables, fruits and legumes. Include the colors orange, yellow , green, plus reds too! Think sweet potatoes/yams, squash, melons, oranges, peas, chard, beets and others.
Brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat couscous and natural, whole grain pastas are great choices.
Limit fats, especially the kind from animals. Good fats are most plant fats like soy, olive and canola oils. No fried anything
Another thing you can try is all natural, human baby food. Stick to the orange colors.
They can be mixed with tiny pasta or rice, whole grain bread or toast - remember, be more creative than the bird is stubborn.
As odd as it sounds, birds don’t need much, if any vitamin C. It is a water soluable vitamin which means it passes out of the body after the body takes what it needs and C is available in a wide variety of both fresh and processed foods given to birds.
Go for the pellets to avoid overall problems - try the uncolored, plain type at first, but feel free to get creative. Whatever she will eat .
--- Do not press accept again on this question -- This is a follow up and I'm happy to do it as often as you need.
Vitamin A/Beta Carotene, on the other hand, is frequently found to be deficient in birds. This is a fat soluble vitamin which means it gets stored in the fat cells of the body, so it’s possible to overdose on it. With our companion birds though, too little is the situation most often encountered.
